Determining whether laser skin treatments are right for you is easy. Read through these frequently asked questions for more information.
WHAT IS PIXEL SKIN RESURFACING?
Pixel skin resurfacing creates an ablative thermal channel at the pixel area - a micro-injury - without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING PIXEL SKIN RESURFACING?
Pixel skin resurfacing can be a stand-alone treatment. The procedure will gradually stimulate new cells to replace aged and photo-aged skin with little patient downtime. As collagen remodels, a fresher, more youthful appearance develops.
WHAT KIND OF LASER DO YOU USE?
We are currently using the FDA-approved Alma Harmony XL platform with the Erbium Pixel handpiece.
WHO NORMALLY PERFORMS SKIN RESURFACING AT OUR SPA?
The pixel treatments are performed by laser technicians who have been certified in the Alma Harmony XL Erbium Pixel 2940.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
No. There will be some type of redness on the treated area, but anyone can go back to work after the treatment. Some people would prefer to have the treatment done on a Friday or Saturday to give the redness time to subside before they go back to work.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED BEFORE A SIGNIFICANT RESULT IS OBTAINED?
4-6 treatments are normally suggested.
